Hillcrest Millard Provides Resort-Style Environment to Recover
Nebraska’s largest post-acute care provider, Hillcrest Health Services (www.hillcresthealth.com), has opened an elite option for Omaha-area residents to recover after a surgery, injury or illness. At Hillcrest Millard, high-quality care is combined with resort-like amenities so guests can recover comfortably without sacrificing the luxuries of everyday life.
Hillcrest’s new post-acute rehab center, Hillcrest Millard, is the organization’s first location in Douglas County. Hillcrest Health Services boasts more than 40 years of experience in senior health care.
“We’ve had many customers come to Hillcrest’s Sarpy County locations from West Omaha,” said Jim Janicki, Vice President of Customer Navigation and Marketing. “This new location in Millard extends our footprint into Omaha and provides a more convenient post-acute rehab option for West Omaha residents.”
As a dedicated short-term post-acute rehab center, Hillcrest Millard’s nursing and therapy teams are focused on helping guests recover and return to their previous level of independence as soon as possible.
“Committed to enhancing the lives of aging adults, we’re excited to say our therapy team at Hillcrest Millard is led by one of the Midwest’s only occupational therapists with a board certification in gerontology,” said Brandi Petrik, Administrator of Hillcrest Millard. “Having an in-house therapy team and innovative strength training equipment specifically designed for seniors allows us to provide guests with consistent and reliable rehabilitative care to speed up recovery.”
Guests typically receive services for 7 to 20 days, based on diagnosis and physician orders, before returning to the place they call home.
“We’re actively partnering with hospitals to ensure smooth transitions with the goal of improving the recovery process and avoiding re-hospitalizations,” said Dr. Tony Hatcher, Chief Medical Officer of Hillcrest Health Services. “We are also equipped to accommodate higher-acuity guests with 17 specialty guest rooms with piped-in oxygen.”
From the private guest suites with private bathrooms, to the 132nd Street Bistro, proudly serving Starbucks® and grab-and-go options, to the made-to-order dining in the Boxcar Restaurant or in the comfort of a guest suite, Hillcrest Millard is truly a step ahead of the rest when it comes to post-acute rehab.
Hillcrest Millard is located at 13225 Westwood Lane in Omaha.
